Overview

About the property

2br, 1.5 bath cabin with stunning mountain views

LOST RIVER, WV is 2 hours from DC, 2.5 – 3.5 hours from Baltimore and Richmond, and 5 hours from Philadelphia. It is situated between the George Washington National Forest, and the Lost River State Park.

The ground floor of this secluded cabin features a living room, dining room, half bath, kitchen, screened porch and large deck with stunning views. The second floor has huge bathroom (with amazing shower) and bedroom with private deck. The third floor is an open loft, with another large private deck and the best views. Each floor has a ceiling fan, hardwood floors, and tons of windows.

The cabin sits on 5 wooded acres, atop a very steep, secluded hill. AWD recommended, but even without AWD most cars can get MOST of the way up the hill, but no guarantees. The cabin has wifi, in-ceiling speakers, comfy chairs and beds, and soothing views over acres and acres of wilderness. Unfortunately there is no trash service, so guests must remove their own trash.

Dogs only. No cats or other pets, please. No smoking anywhere on property.

RATES: Please note that the daily rate is for two (2) people. Each additional person over 5 years old is $35 per night. Holiday rates apply. The dog fee is $50 per pet, per visit and a maximum of two dogs.

I do not currently offer a military discount.

About Kevin Wood

I built the cabin starting in 2007 based on plans I found on The original version of the cabin was designed for a couple in Maine. The Maine version has lots more windows, which after visiting my copy, you'll find hard to believe! I fell in love with Lost River after spending many weekends at friends' houses here. You'll love it too!

Kevin Wood purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Kevin Wood chose Baker

Great location close to everything (15 mins to yoga, Lost River General Store, LR Crafts Cooperative, a bit further to the State Park and Trout Pond). View from the cabin is trees, trees, trees and very little that is man-made. You feel like you're in a tree fort!

What makes this cabin unique

A cabin that is modern! Clean lines, very bright, very open. Great kitchen, large deck and screened porch.

There is no TV.

Amazing views, beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Had an amazing weekend stay at Kevin's place. The house is situated on top of a 'mountain' with amazing views, especially morning sunrise. Be careful with any vehicles that have low ground clearance as the trip up to the house is bumpy with a couple steep ascents. My jeep had no issues. Loft concept house including both bedrooms so not a ton of privacy noise-wise. House was fully equipped with everything you need for cooking including some spices and coffee and more. Also plenty of games/puzzles/books to keep you busy and did I mention the view? The internet is a quite slow (as advertised) but good enough for checking email and surfing the web. It is actually a plus to disconnect for the weekend (no TV as well). We spent most of our time in Lost River which is an easy 20 minute drive. Kevin was super responsive leading up to the weekend and though out. Pup loved it as well as she dog bowls and multiple beds for her comfort. Would definitely stay again!

Beautiful cabin & great views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great experience in this beautiful cabin. It was perfect for a quiet weekend away to put our feet up, go hiking, relax, and breathe. The place is beautifully furnished and the kitchen had everything we needed. It was spotlessly clean! The view is incredible, and Lost River State Park is just 15-20 minutes down the road. We spent the day hiking and enjoying the fall foliage - there were several horseback riders on the trails. We received great instructions about the house and surrounding area. We thoroughly enjoyed it and we will be sure to return.

Great Location, Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Stunning views and a great location to explore nearby parks. Shenandoah is a quick day trip, and Lost River State Park is ~20 mins away. The cabin was beautiful, exceptionally clean, and included all the needed amenities for a nice long weekend.
